    I am looking to find a way to teleport many players ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I need to have it pick several destinations, much like if you respawned them. I can not use respawn because I do not want everyone to have to respawn.

    At the most I have the teleporter working , but as always it picks just one spot.

    If that does not work, is there a way to build a trigger to respawn in a volume to a secondary respawn room?

    Use an info_landmark: info_landmark

    This allows you to have a seperate box the exact same size as the actual respawn to teleport and they will be teleported at exactly the same place away from the landmark. Note, rotations arent possible as far as i know but with teleporting that often shouldnt be an issue.

    And yes, that VDC says its for level transitions. it also works for teleports as i used them in sg_platforms in css.

    Would this still work if I need the the players to teleport into an area that is smaller then the area they teleported from?

    In that case they get teleported outside that area so that indeed wouldnt work. Maybe in that case have 2 or 3 smaller teleports that do match the area they get teleported in. They get spawned in each other a bit more often then though but i think thats something you cant avoid.

    yeah I had already got that idea, and it can not be avoided it seems.
    Luckily they are all on the same team so getting mixed a bit will not make them get stuck.

    last thing, with info_landmark

    does it need to be so many units off the ground, or middle of the person, placed on the floor. How does it teleport a player in relative to its postion?

    ah drat, I can not use it. since the player is relative to the space , if the person is falling or rocket jumping, he could potentially between 2 sections of trigger_teleport, which would then place him to the info_landmark.... into a wall. floor, or ceiling.

    unless I make the triggers, very small, and thus make WAY too many trigger teleports, this means I would have to make the spawn bigger, which would not work given the situation.

    Thanks anyways guys but I think I will stick with a info_teleport_destination. I will have over lap of players, but I can also do something silly. Trigger_push and have them flung into the spawn room from the teleport. The different speeds and masses will seperate. PLus, it will look funny to boot.

    Also... you could use one teleport and randomize the destination... If two people teleported at once, they'd end up in the same spot, but others slightly ahead or behind time wise would end up at another location.
